Although this visit is not for everyone, it is really a great experience for many. For some, visiting the campus will be like walking on "holy ground". Living proof of one man's faith in God to do something with nothing. It is certainly inspiring to...More

From reading a few tour books, we got the impression that viewing the architecture of Oral Roberts University was a "must see" attraction when visiting Tulsa. It's got a fun/quirky but also tired/dated field. One tour book accurately likened it to an area of Disney...More
